  • Known HIV or active hepatitis B or C viral infection.
  • History of cerebrovascular accident (CVA) within 6 months prior to registration.
  • Gastrointestinal abnormalities, including bowel obstruction, inability to take oral medication, requirement for intravenous (IV) alimentation, active peptic ulcer or prior surgical procedures or bowel resection affecting absorption.
  • Peripheral neuropathy Grade 2.
  • Has persistent phosphate level >ULN during screening (within 14 days of treatment and prior to Cycle 1 Day 1) despite medical management.
  • Any corneal or retinal abnormality likely to increase the risk of eye toxicity.
  • Patients that require the following prohibited therapy:
    1. Medicines known to have a risk of causing QTc prolongation and Torsades de Pointes
    2. Medications known to increase serum levels of phosphate and calcium
    3. Medications or substances known to be strong inhibitors or strong inducers of CYP3A4 or CYP2C9 before the recommended 5 half-life washout period
